Launched in August 2009, this is intended to become the best and most comprehensive directory of links about Manic Street Preachers and The Horrors. Why those two bands? "Vision Blurred" happens to also be the name of a cover the Manics did of an (as-yet) unreleased Horrors track and, most importantly, both bands are brilliant.

Since there are already plenty of info- and pic-packed, audio-visual sites out there, that happen to all be scattered across the web and (particularly in the case of the Manics) some of the best are available only as archived versions, I thought I could fill a gap by providing a directory to get to the goods.

I hope you enjoy browsing around here! You can also add site suggestions in the comment box on this page and subscribe to RSS updates *here*.

Site types listed here include, but are not limited to: official sites, info + fan sites, forums, groups, photo and fan art galleries, text articles and interviews, videos, 'definitive' lists on which the bands appear, and general discography / review links.


  1. Hi! As free.fr has just closed my account without letting me know beforehand, could you please change the link of Les Archives de la Douleur to http://lesarchivesdeladouleur.wordpress.com? Thanks! (It has also its own Facebook page on https://www.facebook.com/LesArchivesDeLaDouleur)

  9. Hey Marilyn, I had already looked at the Manics links but have now also looked at the Horrors stuff too- it's great!

    (Posted on 2009-11-14 12:30:00 by Sarah)
  10. Yeah, that is a good idea - thanks! I will add a 'Related' section in the links soon to include that :)

    (Posted on 2009-10-23 02:51:00 by Marilyn Roxie)
  11. hey M, it's me again, i'm here just to suggest Patrick Jones' site and his myspace as he's closely related to the Manics, right? :)

    (Posted on 2009-10-21 14:14:00 by deeta)
  12. Thanks for letting me know! I've fixed it and added those last three links you'd sent. I appreciate the help :D

    (Posted on 2009-10-06 06:54:00 by Marilyn Roxie)
  13. M - one of the links on Manics Photos doesn't work, the one at the end from Repeat Fanzine.

  14. Thanks to everyone who turned up in the chat today - it was excellent! Keep this spot in mind for future Saturdays :D

    (Posted on 2009-09-20 12:56:00 by Marilyn Roxie)
  15. Not to worry - thanks for checking out the site! I've been scouring the Horrors forum to find articles and whatnot.

    (Posted on 2009-09-07 04:16:00 by Marilyn Roxie)
  16. My bad, the site I suggested is already there!

    (Posted on 2009-09-06 20:02:00 by Electricthunder)
  17. What a fantastic site! Check out this interview with the Horrors, http://www.citylife.co.uk/music/features/14173_how_the_horrors_had_the_last_laugh

  21. Thanks, Neon and Deets, and Chloe -that's a great site!- I've added it to the list and credited you :)

    (Posted on 2009-08-25 03:09:00 by Marilyn Roxie)
  22. Great Website! :D

    (Posted on 2009-08-24 14:50:00 by Neon Loneliness)
  23. yay! added site to bookmarks, finally i don't need to keep other sites bookmarked :D

    (Posted on 2009-08-24 14:46:00 by deets)
  24. Also, I'd like to suggest Les Archives de la Douleur, which is probably the most comprehensive and up-to-date website about Manics history and references for French-speaking fans. Shame it's only in French really, because it's one of the best Manics website ever, full stop.

    (Posted on 2009-08-24 13:22:00 by Chloe)
  25. Wow, amazing website! You really did a fantastic job!

    (Posted on 2009-08-24 13:08:00 by Chloe)
  26. Thanks! :D I added a whole bunch of links just now. Recommended site for today, a daily-Manics Tumblr: http://1404.tumblr.com/

  28. Thanks Valley Girl! I hadn't seen that one before and added it - you've been credited! Cheers :)

    (Posted on 2009-08-23 20:33:00 by Marilyn Roxie)
  29. Hello, saw your post on Forever Delayed and think your site is great. Maybe you'd like to include a link to the German fan-site www.manics.de! I've bookmarked yours already.
